645D freezing

Anyone else have this problem? If I view a picture on the LCD and scroll through the menus when I get to the screen with Pixel mapping on the top and format on the bottom if I press the right arrow button to go to the next screen the camera freezes and will not work anymore, to reset the camera I have to pull out the battery and put it back in and it works again, it is doing this every time. Wonder if I should try reinstalling the firmware update?

Not with the 645D during the year of ownership.
BUT
I did remember a similiar incident with the K7, only the once and has not happened since.

Just talked with the Camera Store who intern talked with Pentax and they said the camera has had some compatibility issues with Sandisk Pro D cards which I have two of, will try another card when I get home.

I sent the camera back to the dealer and it was replaced by Pentax. Did not matter what card I used.
